The title of his new book may be What Pet Should I Get?, but fans of Dr. Seuss will know exactly what book to get this July. This never-before-published book was only recently rediscovered by the wife of the late author, although the book was likely written in the late 1950s or early 1960s. What Pet Should I Get? focuses on a brother and sister choosing a family pet and features Seuss’s (aka Theodore Geisel’s) beloved rhymes and playful, instantly recognizable illustrations. Like many of Seuss’s stories, What Pet Should I Get? tackles an important principle (in this case, decision making) through a simple, kid-friendly approach. To be released this summer, this Seussian tale is sure to become an instant classic and a staple in children’s libraries. Available for pre-order now.
